Renting from Fam Video had nothing to do with it. You were comparing a dvd (from Redbox) vs blu ray (from Fam Vid). What other variables are you not telling us about? Whatever differences you noticed had nothing to do with this being a "Redbox rental".

Yes one can !!! Just do this ... LOL-biggrin.gif

If you hold onto your disc for the maximum rental period (21 days almost everywhere for DVDs), you'll be charged the maximum charge and the disc is yours to keep. In most areas, those fees are $25.20 + tax for DVDs ($26.67 in Maryland), $34.50 + tax for Blu-ray Discs ($35.51 in Maryland) and $70 + tax for video games ($74.20 in Maryland)

How are you watching it, Netflx, Redbox,= DVD, BD, streaming, etc ? Warning.. watch out because if you don't have a capable sub or subs and watch it at reference then you may miss the hard hitting slamming Bass that's encoded on the disc. Redbox BD-Shows DTS 5.1 HD Master.
You may also be creating controversy for how the bass sounds on your set up. Haha-LOL......

I have capable subs/room size I have been a regular on this thread. But as I said so far nothing great. I assume it's towards the end

There was one scene where the ground was crumbling by the shore. But other than that nada

There's low end bass all through Pompeii.
Do you have your mains set to large?

you've always been able to buy movies from redbox, but not for $1.50. You'd be surprised by the titles they have for $5-7. I've noticed that once a movie is no longer renting that well, they become available for purchase. I've seen movies released within 2 months and selling for $5.

I wish I had paid more attention to what format was used for the DVD. Usually DVD's upconvert and the SQ is excellent. No hidden variable. Either way, I will not be adding it to my collection. For me, Pompeii is a done deal since I don't think it was a good movie.

Yes. When u tap "rent movies", underneath the movie titles is a box that labeled for sale and there you'll find dvds and blu rays. Tap on movie to see for sale price which for blu rays has always been $5-7. Most people don't realize that option is even there and different kiosks always carry different movies

First 40mins was mainly vocals...with one scene in there with the guy chasing his horse and the volcano boils up that near by lake..................that volcano grumbling sound was awesome!.....................Once they start the final fight in the arena and the volcano finally erupts after it was pretty much all throughout the movie.

Are we talking another "Elysium" style debate, I finally got my netflix copy in but won't get to view till later this week , are others finding a sub bump necessary (3-6 db) are its just the single digit stuff here were the movie shines. I'll see what if anything I can get from it but I did find Elysium to have excellent bass and a well done soundtrack.

You don't need to bump the sub like Elysium. The bass feels fuller in general vs Elysium and execution is better IMO.

This should be interesting as I've only seen Elysium once and that viewing had no bump and I found the bass levels on par with the rest of the superb mix. Did you find the dynamic range and overall sound mix good at reference volume?

For which movie? I was not as big on Elysium as some as I found the track tilted a bit too much toward the extreme low end and I thought execution was a bit spotty with some weapons sounding wimpy. I had no complaints with Pompeii. cool.gif

I understand exactly what your talking about regarding Elysium , the bass could be considered heavy handed but thats what I liked about it as it didn't require a boost and it was workout for the sub to extract definition from it and balance it with the mix ( a difficult task) and not sound muddy. It seems like Pompeii may have a good sounding balance in contrast. For sure not all bass tracks are the same and a different experience can be had from all good case in point is Frankenstein's Army and Dead in Tombstone not all will like it but those differences are to be appreciated and keeps things fresh.

Thanks smile.gif
